“I do not think that someone who objects to homosexual parents is a retarded homophobe. I believe they have an opinion. But, that said, I emphatically don’t agree that lesbians necessarily make better parents than me.”
Who said that ? A lauded philosopher ? A highly acclaimed pediatrician ? Nah. Jeremy Clarkson – the bloke from Top Gear.

Still tuning in to Top Gear every week ?
Freedom of expression is one thing – and Clarkson keeps reminding us that it is an important thing – but freedom to be snarky and not much else is quite another. His incessant sniping and portrayal of stereotypes isn’t very useful to the debate. He has a view and that is that. Clarkson’s style is say it, say it and say it again – then it must be true. Add a layer of “humour” and all is fine. Anyone criticising is a humourless nerk.
So come on revheads, offer Jeremy a quiet drive off road. And when you pull up for a smoko or picnic, have a bit of a debate with him.
